Harry Styles Performs “Fine Line” Songs at NPR's Tiny Desk Concert
- English singer-songwriter Harry Styles stopped by NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert to perform “Cherry”, “Watermelon Sugar”,“To Be So Lonely” and “Adore You”.
Four songs are included on his second studio album “Fine Line”, which was released last December.
“I have to come into NPR more often,” Harry Styles said after he and his band played their first song. "It's nice here."
“Watermelon Sugar” is the second single off of the album. “This song became ‘Watermelon Sugar’ and it’s probably the longest it’s ever taken me to finish a song. We kind of liked it when we first had it, and then I really hated it for a long time. Then it came back and it seemed to keep coming back into the mix. It’s kind of about that initial, I guess, euphoria, of when you start seeing someone, you start sleeping with someone, or just being around someone and you have that excitement about them.”
“To Be So Lonely” was recorded in Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios in England. He introduced his guitarist and collaborator Mitchell Rowland to the audience while explaining how “To Be So Lonely” came together.
“Adore You” is the third single off. He explained that the song was also about that feeling, joking that the song was “about a fish.”
He said, “I just had this fish for a while and I really liked it. That’s the whole story behind the song really.”
